Steel Structures 4th Edition Book Excerpt:

At the end of year 2005, new AISC Specification was released that contained formulas for both Allowable Stress Design and Load and Resistance Factor Design in non-dimensional format to be used for both the FPS and SI units. In year 2010, this specification for steel structures design and the seismic provisions were updated. This specification was further revised in 2016. This book is prepared in the light of the new Specifications. AASHTO LRFD Specifications are used to present the concepts of bridge loading and the design procedure. As in the first edition, in place of explaining the various aspects of design such as checking various strength capacities, stability requirements and serviceability limits in separate chapters, complete design including all the major steps of design are presented in individual units for various types of members. It is expected that this procedure gives true picture of design process to the beginners and the practicing engineers. This book is more useful if it is used along with another publication “LRFD Steel Design Aids”, termed as Design Aids in this book. The flow charts given in different sections of this book may easily be computerized to get custom-made computer programs for personal use. International system of units (SI) is used throughout the book. Suggestions for further improvement of the presentation will be highly appreciated and will be incorporated in the future editions.

The Behaviour and Design of Steel Structures to EC3 Book Excerpt:

The fully revised fourth edition of this successful textbook fills a void which will arise when British designers start using the European steel code EC3 instead of the current steel code BS5950. The principal feature of the forth edition is the discussion of the behaviour of steel structures and the criteria used in design according to the British version of EC3. Thus it serves to bridge the gap which too often occurs when attention is concentrated on methods of analysis and the sizing of structural components. Because emphasis is placed on the development of an understanding of behaviour, many analytical details are either omitted in favour of more descriptive explanations, or are relegated to appendices. The many worked examples both illustrate the behaviour of steel structures and exemplify details of the design process. The Behaviour and Design of Steel Structures to EC3 is a key text for senior undergraduate and graduate students, and an essential reference tool for practising structural engineers in the UK and other countries.

Data Structures Problem Solving Using Java Book Excerpt:

Data Structures and Problem Solving Using Java takes a practical and unique approach to data structures that separates interface from implementation. It is suitable for the second or third programming course. This book provides a practical introduction to data structures with an emphasis on abstract thinking and problem solving, as well as the use of Java. It does this through what remains a unique approach that clearly separates each data structure's interface (how to use a data structure) from its implementation (how to actually program that structure). Parts I (Tour of Java), II (Algorithms and Building Blocks), and III (Applications) lay the groundwork by discussing basic concepts and tools and providing some practical examples, while Part IV (Implementations) focuses on implementation of data structures. This forces the reader to think about the functionality of the data structures before the hash table is implemented. The Fourth Edition features many new updates as well as new exercises.

Theory of Adaptive Structures Book Excerpt:

Theory of Adaptive Structures provides the basic theory for controlling adaptive structures in static and dynamic environments. It synthesizes well-established theories on modern control as well as statics and dynamics of deformable bodies. Discussions concentrate on the discrete parameter adaptive structures dealing with actuator placement, actuator selection, and actuation computation problems - keeping these structures at close proximity of any chosen nominal state with the least energy consumption. An introduction to the distributed parameter adaptive structures is also provided. The book follows that modern trend in research and industry striving to incorporate intelligence into engineered products through microprocessors that are becoming smaller, faster, and cheaper at astounding rates. Not using them in engineered products may become an enormous liability. Resulting from the advances in materials technology on sensors and actuator technologies as well as the availability of very powerful and reliable microprocessors, there is an ever-increasing interest in actively controlling the behavior of engineering systems. Engineers and engineering scientists must revive and broaden their activities to maximize applications for predicting and controlling the behavior of deformable bodies. Topics include: An introduction to adaptive structures Incremental excitation-response relations in static and dynamic cases Active control of response in static case Statically determinate adaptive structures Statically indeterminate adaptive structures Active vibration control for autonomous and non-autonomous cases Active control against wind Active control against seismic loads Distributed parameter adaptive structures The technology of adaptive structures has created an environment where the analysis, not the computation, of structural response - due to actuator-inserted deformations - has become important. Problems related to the placement, the operation in real time, and the energy consumption of the actuators require the review and broadening of the theories long dormant due to the emphasis placed in the numerical simulations of structural behavior by the displacement finite element method. This book furnishes the basic theory needed by modern engineers in the design and control of discrete parameter adaptive structures .
